Group Classes

Dog Training Group Classes in Manhattan, KS

Flexibility in a group class setting

MuttSchool’s flexible levels classes are not about training sit and down (although we do that, too!). Our classes train your dog to be polite, at home and in public, while teaching you problem-solving dog training skills that you can use outside of our classroom. The end result? You can enjoy having a confident, well-mannered and happy canine.

OUR FLEXIBLE GROUP CLASSES OFFER:

  • NO WAITING PERIOD TO START CLASS: Other trainers offer classes where everyone in the class starts on the same date. This means after you inquire about the class, you could wait weeks to start. By then, you risk any problems you were struggling with getting worse or missing out on specific milestones with puppies and young dogs. With MuttSchool’s flexible levels training classes there is no waiting! Simply sign up and begin your MuttSchool class within a day or so.
  • CAN’T ATTEND EVERY WEEK?: With MuttSchool’s flexible group classes you are purchasing credits that you redeem to take a class. If you need to miss a week–no problem. Just don’t schedule yourself for that class and use your credit to select a class you can attend. For levels 1 and 2, you will receive 5 credits to use within 10 weeks of purchase. With levels 3-5, you will have 10 credits to use within 15 weeks of the start of that level.
  • SMALL CLASS SIZES: Sometimes it’s easy to feel overwhelmed when trying to learn new things in a large group of people and dogs. Because of this, we have limited our flexible group classes to no more than 6 dogs. This helps to reduce the stress of overcrowding in group classes, allows more personalized attention and makes learning fun!

BUNDLE YOUR LEVELS GROUP CLASSES AND SAVE: 


LEVEL 1: GETTING STARTED (5 classes)

$100

In addition to training behaviors like sit, down, stand and walking nicely on leash, Level 1 teaches your dog how much fun it can be to work for you as we lay the foundation to learning more advanced training skills. In Level 1, we focus on establishing lines of communication between you and your dog. You will learn about dog body language and how to change challenging behaviors that are happening at home. You may be surprised at how readily your dog will want to learn new things with our positive reinforcement training methods.

MuttSchool highly recommends that you take Levels 1, 2 and 3 for a more rounded training program for you and your dog. Look for the bundle for $40 off.

Prerequisites: All dogs (even those with prior training) start in level 1

LEVEL 2: LEARNING MANNERS (5 classes)

$100

In Level 2, you and your dog will build on the skills you learned in the first level. We will be introducing training exercises that are more challenging and useful in the real world. As we continue to establish better lines of communication with our dog, we will also be working on solving challenging behaviors that are happening at home. In level 2, our focus is establishing manners so you have a better behaved dog both at home and away.

Prerequisites: All dogs must have completed Level 1.

LEVEL 3: SKILL BUILDING (10 classes)

$200

Now that you’ve established a solid foundation, the skills your dog learned in the previous two classes will really start to shine in level 3! At this level, we’ll start reinforcing reliability and working on more complex behaviors. In Level 3 you will be eligible to test for the AKC Canine Good Citizen certificate. You may also enroll in our specialty classes and test for the use of our open gym times.

LEVEL 4: RAISING THE BAR (10 classes)

$200

As you begin Level 4 training, you should feel excited about all you and your dog have accomplished together. During Level 4 training, you and your dog will work on polishing the skills learned in prior classes and start practicing more challenging tasks. You will start building the 3Ds (Distance, Duration and Distractions) to the behaviors your dog already knows. In Level 4 you will be eligible to test for the AKC Community Canine certificate. You may also enroll in our specialty classes and test for the use of our open gym times.

Prerequisites: All dogs must have completed Level 3

LEVEL 5: ADVANCED (10 classes)

$200

Whether you want a superbly trained pet or are thinking about competing in dog sports, competition rally or obedience, this class brings all your dog's training together for you. Dogs that pass Level 5 training exhibit exceptional behavioral control. In this final foundations level, we’ll work on advanced skills, impulse control and formal obedience heeling exercises. You and your dog will be eligible to test for the AKC Urban Canine Good Citizen certificate. Because the CGCU requires dogs test in an urban setting, some of this class will take place in public locations as scheduled by your instructor. You may also enroll in our specialty classes and test for the use of our open gym times. Completion of this class is the starting point for Service Dog and Therapy Dog training.

Prerequisites: All dogs must have completed Level 4.

Sometimes you need a little extra help around the house! While we can't teach your dog to vacuum, we can help with reoccurring problems at home. Add on personalized in-home training to compliment the group class you are attending. We can customize your sessions to cover just about anything: potty training, crate training, setting boundaries, jumping, counter-surfing, door-dashing, nipping or chewing. Or, use one of your lessons before you get your new dog/puppy to go over what to expect and what to do when you bring your new furry friend home.
